Your home is the perfect fit for a family, so why not put it to work earning some extra cash when you’re away? Listing on Airbnb is a great way to make sure your house doesn’t sit empty when you’re on vacation and even earn a buck you can use to pay for your own getaway. The question is, how much can you really make?

Eliot & Me is a start-up website designed by data scientists and entrepreneurs to easily answer travel related questions, like the best time to visit specific locations and how much your home would make on Airbnb. The calculator tool is incredibly simple to use. All you have to do is plug in your address and the site will tell you exactly how much your house is worth as a vacation rental.

The estimate factors in location, as well as the size of your home and the amount of bedrooms and bathrooms. You’ll see a daily and weekly rate and the monthly value as it fluctuates over a year to give you an idea of the peak times to list.
